Try cleaning the machine by adding white vinegar to the wash water (before the water-fill procedure finishes). Put your stained dishes and cutlery in with the wash to remove the hard water deposits. The combination of salt and rinse aid may have helped cause this problem. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Glasses are coming out smudged

  • Test your water for hardness. Excessive dissolved calcium or magnesium will interfere with the soap and leave lime deposits on the dishes.
  • Check the spray arms and make sure they do not have garbage inside blocking the spray holes. They are made to be easily removed for cleaning.
  • Make sure the dishwasher drain line is working properly. A backup of first wash water will leave a lot of trash in the dishwasher that will reduce the effectiveness of the second wash cycle. You may have to babysit the dishwasher through a cycle to catch it and open it right at the end of the first drain cycle for inspection to be sure all of the dirty water is pumped out. I suggest timing the cycle indicators in case you miss that point; then you know when to be ready the next time.
  • Try a different brand of soap. Some just don't work well, particularly in hard water conditions.
  • If you haven't found the problem by this point, open up the pump and inspect it (particularly the water inlet screen and drain outlet) for foreign material.

SOURCE: glassware is cloudy

Do you generally have hard water--it sounds like that is what you are dealing with. The salt light is to tell you the water-softener salt bin is empty. Where I live we don't use the salt so the light is just an on-off light, but you may need it to reduce the residue.

Where can I buy new loading baskets for my DWI 160 dishwasher?


These come as several parts. Not sure if all are available anymore as Candy parts. But you can get replacement Hoover parts to fit.

Main basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Dishwasher Basket

Cutlery basket from Candy
Candy DWI 160W UK Universal Cutlery Basket

The Upper and Lower baskets may not be available from Candy but Hoover replacements are
Candy Use HVR41022779 Lower Basket

Best to ask Candy support to provide pictures of the parts for comparison with your model or purchase or a refund policy if not suitable.

There is another site worth checking (but prices seem high)

Just moved into a house with fitted NEFF dishwasher, never had one before and no manual left. Where do salts go? Thanks


Hi there,

The salt goes in the salt compartment in the base of the dishwasher. Open the door and pull the lower basket out. You should then be able to see a cap near the front-left corner of the base of the dishwasher. Unscrew this cap (anti-clockwise) and fill the compartment with salt all the way to the top - or with as much salt as you have in the packet - then screw the cap back on firmly, but do not over-tighten it. The salt compartment will (or should!) be full of water and some will spill out as you fill it with salt. This is totally normal and not indicative of any problem.

Do not use any type of salt which is not sold specifically for dishwashers. The dishwasher can be used without salt but it is not advised and may result in a white film being left on your cutlery, glassware and/or dishes.

It may also be possible to provide a user manual in PDF format which you can download, but I would need to know the model number. If you don't know the model number Most Neff/Bosch dishwashers have the model number laser-etched into the stainless-steel at the top of the inner-door or the rim of the washing compartment. Please click on the link below for a guide to locating the model number of your dishwasher. (Neff is a Bosch owned brand)

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you would like the manual or need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Any thing stainless which gets washed in my dishwasher comes out with rusty spots


Check the items are dishwasher proof, not just the items that are becoming tarnished but other items, main culprits ar cheese graters and garlic presses as these are not suitable for the d/w and will cause deposits on the other items.
There are 4 main reasons
1.Stainless items are left in a damp d/w with salt or acidic food residue.
2.Items are peft for long periods of time in a damp d/w after cycle has finished
3. undissolved powder (particularly if using quick wash) has come into contact with the cutlery.
4. different types of metal have come into contact with each other.
Hope this helps.

If you live in a hard water area the 5 in 1 tablets will only work half way. Consider Calgon powder or the tablets which can be left in the dishwasher cutlery basket as an additional measure. Hard water areas are notorious for leaving chalky residue on cutlery regardless of 3 in 1/5 in 1 tablet promises. 
Also your dishwasher will require rinse aid too as most machines need this to mix in with the general water and soap solutions when the dishwasher is on its final rinse.
